Many Americans are affected by sleep apnea (when breathing stops during sleep), because of factors such as culture, diet, physique, and more. Learn more about sleep apnea if you:
- Wake up with a dry mouth
- Have memory problems, especially with short-term memory
- Feel chronic fatigue
- Have trouble staying focused
As an expert in neuromuscular dentistry, the airway and the chewing system, Dr. Morris thoroughly understands sleep apnea. Sarasota patients (who may or may not have had a sleep study) can find relief from World Class Dentistry and Facial Esthetics®. Dr. Morris can determine if an oral appliance or a DNA appliance is right for you.
There are many possible causes of sleep apnea. Once a patient has had a professional sleep study, Dr. Morris can determine an effective treatment plan with an oral appliance. Dr. Morris’ Sarasota sleep apnea relief includes two types of oral appliances. Both are worn in the mouth; one positions jaws for optimum air intake, and the other offers a long-term solution by gradually encouraging jaw movement and growth.
Possible contributing factors for sleep apnea:
- Being over weight
- Large neck girth
- Poor diet (excessive sugar & refined foods)
- Unnatural childhood growth/development
Our treatment is more comfortable and less disruptive than a CPAP machine.
